Two lecture/lab classes on Revit Families for the ORUG, Orlando Revit Users Group
After coming back from Melbourne, Australia, where I participated at the Revit Technology Conference a few days ago, I would like to announce that I will be teaching in Orlando, Florida, another version of the same topics of the two lab classes that I taught in Australia, this time for the July and August meetings of the Orlando Revit Users Group (ORUG). The details about the place, time and dates for these classes will be in the Linkedin group of ORUG. The organizers will send an invitation to the members of the group. For more information, please refer to this link: ORUG
The theme of the two classes is the “emergency room” for families. It’s not an introduction to families. It’s not a beginner class. It’s not about easy families. It’s not about stories of success but, instead, stories of failure, most of them from users of discussion forums, who asked about how to solve these families, and failed in their attempts.
First, I will explain a recommended workflow for making Revit families, then I will present some difficult families that don’t work. Then I will indicate (or ask the audience) where in that workflow something could have been done better, and then I will present a solution to fix the families. Since the families are difficult, fixing them is a “delicate operation”, that’s why we put the families in “the emergency room”.
The classes are a combination of lecture and lab. If you want to follow the exercises, bring your own laptop, with Revit 2014. The first class, in July, will present 3 or 4 generic families, and the second class, in August, will present 3 adaptive families. The specific topics of each class are listed below:
Class # 1 (July 8th)
“Emergency Room for Generic Families”
Class # 2: (August 12th)
“Emergency Room for Adaptive Families”
Well, that’s the program for my classes at ORUG. I hope to see you there! Remember, for more information, please refer to the ORUG’s Linkedin group. If you’re not in Linkedin, you need to become a member first, and then, you need to become a member of the ORUG group.

About my personal notes from the Revit Technology Conference in Melbourne, I’m working on them, and that will be my next blog article.
